Hi there.. I'm a 53 yr old guy, very active, wondering what to do. I have waited now 1 year since I first experienced any symptoms due to cervical stenosis, and the symptoms have slowly gotten a little worse. But my symptoms are mild; on the other hand the MRIs look like those darn discs are about to sever my spine.
I feel awkward since i really have no pain at this point like so many others. My concern is how long should I postpone having surgery done. Should I do it nos, while healthy, and hope it helps; or put if off till I really need it to alleviate some pain..if that starts to happen. Is the risk (of hitting tree, or being in car crash) worth considering to have it done.?
best wishes to y'all
